  1. Can u tell me the brand of yarn you used as well as the colors – they are stunning and I can’t quite get the look you did with the colors I have.
    Thanks
    Kim

  2. Could u tell me the name of the pattern for the big leaf as well as the other leaves and the small “balls” that are on stems- when I go to look it up it says the page cannot be found.
    Thanks

  3. Your patterns are absolutely the most beautiful!! Can u tell me the names of all the flower patterns used in the Smile Sunflower bouquet and where to find them- I LOVE ALL your color combinations that you have chosen in all your patterns! In my opinion you are THE BEST!
    Kim

  4. Hi! Your sunflower looks stunning! Thank you for the tutorial. I saw the sunflower on the bouquet have 14 petals, but in the tutorial is 18 petals. Do you mind sharing the pattern for the 14 petals?

  5. 5 stars
    Me encanta, que nos compartas estos hermosísimos tutoriales ya que son los mejores flores muy hermosas y todo espectacular, muy bien explicado gracias mil gracias… bendiciones

  6. Hello! I am very confused by the directions. When it says to “Repeat ** 5 times”, that typically means to repeat that exact set of instructions five times. But at the beginning of this pattern, if you “2 sc in each stitch” all the way around, and then do that 5 more times, you would have a total of 448 stitches by the time you are finished with Round 4, not including the slip stitch at the end. I am on my second “repeat 5 times” for Round 4 and the spiral is ruffling like crazy because there aren’t the proper of increases as I go around. In the video, you do not make as many stitches as your pattern… so I can’t figure out what the pattern is supposed to say. 🙁 Is there any way that you can please help?

    1. “2 sc in each st” means work 2 sc in one st, not in every st, so it’s only 2 stitches. For example, after R1 there are 6 stitches, then work “2 sc in each st” and repeat 5 times you will get only 12 stitches. In R3, “sc, 2 sc in each st” is 3 stitches, and repeat 5 times you will get 18 stitches totally.

      1. Thank you so much for clarifying 🙂
        Instead of “2 sc in each st” you may want to write it as “inc”, which means to increase in the stitch, also meaning to put 2 single crochets in that same stitch. “Each st” usually means in every stitch around.
        Thanks again!

  7. I’m so confused with the wording you have for the back looping. And the video is sped up so I can’t follow along. Im not sure what blosc2 and then you have 2blosc. Thanks!

    1. Thanks for your feedback. “blosc2” means the same as “2blosc”, in back loops only, make 2 single crochet. We have uniformly corrected the writing. we hope you will continue to follow us, we will continue to update exciting patterns.

  8. Please help. The stamen instructions row 10 and 11. If you count the stitches, row 10 will result in 45 stitches (9 × 5) but row 11 you say blosc 54. I dont understand how that happened? I figured ooo maybe a typo?

    Then i moved on to the petals and i can only make 15 small petals from 45 stitches but thw instructions make 17. Please help.

  9. I can’t seem to figure out how you got to 54 stitches for the sunflower stamen, step 11, row 10, I keep getting 59, can you tell me each row the number to stitches I’m supposed to have..

  10. 5 stars
    hi ! i was just wondering if the iron wire for the petals is absolutely necessary? would the petals be too droppy if i skipped the wire?

  11. I love these! Mine seem rather large. Any chance you could tell me the diameter of the sunflower- maybe the middle and then including petals? Thanks so much for sharing your patterns!

    1. The core is about 9cm in calibre, the petals are about 4cm. Maybe you can pull the yarn harder and tighter while crocheting so it will come out smaller.

  12. 5 stars
    Absolutely in love with this wonderful sunflower I’ve just finished. Thank you for this pattern and when I was lost the youtube tutorials were super helpful. ❤️

  13. Hi! First of all: loving your creations… Had a hard time choosing one to start with… I went with the sunflower and have a questions for you: I see you have to start at row 9 of the stamen to start with the little petals, front loops only. But I already used the front loops of row 9 for the melon seed (R6 and then: R7-R9 repeat row 6). So I don’t understand where I should begin with the flower petals… In the video I see you start on a new row, where you only worked in the back loops… do you start in row 10? But then you need a R11 for the big petals? Thanks for giving me some advice…

    1. Work in remaining front loops of R6 in the stamen. To be precise, it is equivalent to crochet in the front loops of R5. Crochet 4 rounds of melon seeds, and then crochet the petals in the remaining 2 rounds. Thank you for your feedback, we will modify the pattern to be more detailed. Happy crocheting!
